More Good Mythical Origins


Morgan Colby Gatings on October 2, 2022 at 11:38 am

Okay this episode shows why link cannot be trusted with sharp objects

Corissa McCalister on September 30, 2022 at 8:57 pm

I love this. I love this so much

Patrick Lund on September 17, 2022 at 12:41 pm

How about if you bullseye the correct country you get an all expenses paid trip to that country?

Ol Dusty Trails on September 14, 2022 at 8:52 pm

This game is my favorite on the show, but love all of the different games that have been on the show. Shuffleboard, putting and axe throwing are quality episodes but the darts are raining king!

Sarah K Soto on September 9, 2022 at 9:23 am

I seriously love the parent voiceovers that randomly show up in the episodes, it gets me every time! Especially when Charles' voice was suddenly there during GME

Brandon Thrailkill on June 2, 2022 at 3:02 am

My wife and I love the show and love these origin stories! We hope you're making more, and we'd love an origin story for the Mythical Crew!

Adam Williams on May 8, 2022 at 6:51 pm

I love these. I want more!

JP on May 4, 2022 at 1:47 pm

amazing series lol

Coby J Dingman on March 30, 2022 at 8:53 pm

Rhett practices darts, he keeps a dart board behind his super special, secret, super secret, special bike.

Stephen on February 26, 2022 at 7:48 am

These were amazing and a big part of why I decided to join the Mythical Society. I'd love to see more of these!

Amy Vincent on February 18, 2022 at 6:12 pm

My fav game!

Ekaterina Bezruchenko on February 12, 2022 at 12:07 pm

LET'S DO BOW AND ARROW PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ekaterina Bezruchenko on February 12, 2022 at 11:51 am

the total profile shot is bad. it isn't complementing anyone. even the most beautiful Stevie

Navil Gomez on February 6, 2022 at 5:57 pm

i was loving this then Morgan came on the screen and now all I want to know is where did he get that hoodie? it's so lovely.

Bobby Cone on February 5, 2022 at 3:46 pm

BB guns would be a cool one. No scopes of course. Bif too dangerous, which I'm guessing they would be, then how about nerf guns with the suction cup darts for one episode.

Mary Mccormack on February 4, 2022 at 5:15 pm

i love when the parents are involved

Ellie Labes on February 3, 2022 at 12:17 am

I absolutely love this series! I love learning about the origin and evolution of these things that have become staples on the show.
One thing I will suggest for next time however, is a different second camera angle for these interviews. The main, front and center angle is good, but the secondary, side angle is way too far back. Especially on Morgan's, I felt like I was just watching his back as he was talking. Maybe move the camera a little more forward if you want a second angle, but you also don't really need it that much. Just a suggestion.

Mark Clement on February 1, 2022 at 4:12 am

I would love the origin of why rhett and the crew doesn't trust link with knives

Tao Canuel on February 4, 2022 at 2:58 pm

Link was opening a package (barbie for Lily i think?) at Christmas, cut himself, and then fainted into his father-in-law's arms... lol I can't remember which episode this was, maybe an ear biscuits.

Ada Pioquinto on February 12, 2022 at 8:58 pm

It was in one of their first episodes. When Jason was around. But itโ€™s a trait he has. Heโ€™s just injury prone and Rhett knows.

Emily Tomlinson on February 2, 2022 at 3:05 pm

I feel like I saw this on their instagram

Camden Cunningham on January 26, 2022 at 4:37 pm

These Origins were awesome! I bought a first tier membership just for these and I'm so glad I did. I'd love to see more!

Chi Sol on January 22, 2022 at 8:26 pm

This was such an awesome series. Gave us a look into rnl's as well as the mythical crew's thoughts. I do hope they try new games but always keep it safe guys, especially Link! ๐Ÿ˜…

Lea Bostwick on January 20, 2022 at 1:45 am

i really do hope the mythical crew are able to convince Link's mom to do it next!!

Aaron Ettestad on January 19, 2022 at 5:14 pm

this might be my favorite episode of Origins, but I loved them all! This is exactly the kind of BTS content I subscribe to the Society for. Its really interesting to hear both R&L and crew talk about things on the show that we all know but in a perspective that we've never heard before.
I know this was only supposed to be for the 10 yr Anniversary but I'd 100% support this as an ongoing/recurring series!

Jade Avery (they/them) on January 16, 2022 at 8:10 pm

I think it's more about Link wanting to beat Rhett than it is about Link wanting to win hahaha. These were an absolute treat! More? O:) Imma go watch some dart episodes now!

Greg Plume on January 16, 2022 at 1:40 am

a couple of things... until I seen the intro to this series, I did not know that the picture on the far wall changes so many times! Also can GMM just become a cult so I can join and live the rest of my life in bliss?! Thank you!

Maya Ramesar on January 16, 2022 at 12:51 am

immensely enjoy any format that lets me look into the thought process behind some of these bits

Rachel Nunn on January 15, 2022 at 4:26 pm

"You should never be allowed to live that down" - Oh don't worry Rhett we're never gonna let him XD. Also Archery would be amazing! As would more of these origin eps... they've been so fun!

Josh Clinton on January 15, 2022 at 4:05 pm


Shannon Foust on January 14, 2022 at 2:08 pm

The dart games are my favorite thing on GMM so I'm glad to hear y'all like them too and it'll be sticking around for awhile. DOCKERS!!

Nissa Stewart on January 14, 2022 at 1:06 pm

I feel like they need to use lawn darts .... Just once, and it can be where to international lawn ornaments/games come from

Maggie Kalt on January 13, 2022 at 11:37 pm

an archery game would be sooo good

Raven Russell on January 14, 2022 at 4:11 am

I love the skits from the parents. It's hilarious!

Stacey Mounce on January 14, 2022 at 1:15 am

These have been great. We need another season, especially for us Mythical Beasts that came later on. You could do Damnyell, Cotton Candy Randy, Link finding a Sprite, โ€œWeโ€™re still good,โ€ Brians, Will its, the wheel of mythicality, the randler, Belvedere, the shuffleboard game and probably a lot more.

Nate Frazee on January 22, 2022 at 1:43 pm

there is seriously so much potential!

Samantha Sholtes on January 14, 2022 at 12:57 am

I loved this series! I hope this can become a regular thing!

PJ on January 13, 2022 at 1:55 pm

I appreciate that Chase dressed up as 'Cartographer Chase' for this episode :)

Sarah Thomas on January 13, 2022 at 9:30 pm

I love watching these! I was hoping for a sprite can origin though tbh.

Sabine Andersen on January 13, 2022 at 11:47 am

Omg all of these is so great! I'm new to being a MB and these videos got me up to date on all the stuff i love but don't know nothing about.... Love em

Lore R on January 13, 2022 at 6:15 pm

Thank you for doing this series! I love hearing about all the behind the scenes stuff, even the things you guys don't enjoy. Thanks for the honesty!

Erik Wright on January 13, 2022 at 4:16 pm

The international taste test is by far my favorite game they do! love it! close 2nd is blind taste test but when I see international I get so excited! please don't ever stop

Tamrie Oliver on January 13, 2022 at 1:37 pm

Link's dad has got to be my favorite part of this. He is just so adorable!

Margot Tuttle on January 13, 2022 at 1:44 am

PLEASE never exhaust the dart game series, it's my favorite and I know many more agree!

Shawn Ward on January 13, 2022 at 1:28 am

These Mythical Origins were really cool, And I Absolutely love international darts!!

MARIAN MESSELT on January 12, 2022 at 11:25 pm

This seems like a natural segue into why we don't trust Link with sharp things. Considering how dangerous he still is (having nearly stabbed Rhett with the miniature wedding cake knife, thinking it wasn't real) and has been throughout the years when it comes to handling sharp objects!

Meghan Grannas on January 13, 2022 at 6:40 am

The International Darts Game is one of my favorite games on GMM. The first time I saw it, I immediately fell in love with the game because I got to learn about different dishes from around the world. Also the fact that our world is very culinarily diverse is amazing. You really get a certain perspective on different cultures. I think it's pretty neat.

Shari Lipman on January 12, 2022 at 10:38 pm

I love, love, loved this whole series, and hope there will be more Good Mythical Origins in the future. One teeny bit of criticism....the interviews in profile were distracting. The interview bits with them weren't that long that the camera angle needed to be moved. Especially with Morgan Morgan who we rarely see on screen as it is.....we want/need to see as much of that face as we can get.

Sarah A Garrett on January 13, 2022 at 6:21 am

Loved these Good Mythical Origins videos. I would have loved to have one on your Will It series...
but least the dart game was covered. ๐Ÿค—

Jarek Kolinski on January 12, 2022 at 10:03 pm

I thought they'd talk about Link being unable to win this game at first. I remember he lost the first handful, and then was given the OG advantage, the fart. They've been pretty even in this game for a while now so it's easy to forget

Megan Watters on January 12, 2022 at 9:50 pm

This is my favorite game that they play, I'd like to see them with a list of countries & a blank map, at this point their geography game should be on point (just noticed the pun there... leaving it in, why not).

Laura Henderson on January 12, 2022 at 8:23 pm

Please do this again! This series made me fall in love all over again and props to the crew for making it look real. Thank you Rhett and Link for being so open and vulnerable.

Aileen Mack on January 12, 2022 at 8:09 pm

Absolutely loved this series! And it leaves potential for more episodes. I loved seeing the origins and the montages of things I witness evolved and of those that were already semi-established before I became a Mythical Beast. Well done to all involved! I had a smile on my face during every video. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜„

Ali Richard on January 13, 2022 at 3:53 am

the international episodes are so calming to me, I've compiled them into a YouTube playlist to fall asleep to. I've gained so much subconscious knowledge lolol

Ryan on January 12, 2022 at 7:21 pm

I wish the intro was longer. It's easy to miss lots of the details

Amie Peterson on January 12, 2022 at 6:50 pm

I say if you land on a bullseye you get to minus 10 cm from your score. Making it either a closer or runaway game. But this cannot work with a cheat dart.

Amy Petrica on January 13, 2022 at 2:14 am

Yeah, I don't know about arming Link with a bow and arrow. maybe a Nerf version with suction cups.

Deanna Hoyt on January 12, 2022 at 5:32 pm

Our family absolutely loves the dart episodes.

Claudie Rollin-Quinn on January 13, 2022 at 12:58 am

love the darts game!!

Chloe Roethler on January 12, 2022 at 4:57 pm

Darts episodes are by far my favorite!

Anna Baldwin on January 12, 2022 at 2:43 pm


This series was brilliant, thank you!!!

Anna on January 12, 2022 at 1:41 pm

I am LOVING Good Mythical Origins!! Please sir.. may I have another!

StormCrow on January 12, 2022 at 6:57 pm

yes, Link with knives, Sprite, Beans, Were Still Good.

Leena Pentti on January 12, 2022 at 9:41 pm

I meant to just watch the first episode, and ended up watching the whole docuseries. What a delight!

The international darts game is one of my favourites of the recurring games, and Morgan is right, it's still fresh every time. Getting the parents involved was a brilliant addition (so was hearing Rhett's thoughts in the most recent rendition).

Funny thing, I just saw a video by RoomieOfficial where they played a similar game, only about music, and with Nerf guns, and he acknowledged GMM as the inspiration.

Peter Kazmir on January 12, 2022 at 1:04 pm

I love when the parents are "on" the show too!

Jojo Hallbrook on January 12, 2022 at 12:57 pm

The very fact that Link needed an advantage dart was the joke. Regardless of how much better Link gets, I don't believe Rhett should ever be able to use the advantage dart. I think it just ruins the original joke that Link was awful at darts. I understand that it may seem unfair, but if you're gonna do that just remove it entirely instead of ruining the joke.

Erica is Lost in the Music on January 12, 2022 at 7:46 pm

If you bring archery into the equation, you just might have to find yourselves another cartographer bc Chase gon' QUIT. ๐Ÿคฃ
The voiceover bit has been a great addition, it really has. I love how the darts has been such a long running game bc it really is so versatile. You can switch it up so many ways, it never gets old.
Keep up the good work, y'all! We APPRECIATE all the wonderful things you've been doing to make the Society 110% worth it!! ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿฅฐ

Paul T Burdick on January 12, 2022 at 7:34 pm

absolutely love the dart games, u got this Link

Mark Stanley on January 12, 2022 at 11:04 am

The international taste tests were the first GMM format I followed, before I became a regular viewer. I like seeing all the food from around the world, always cheer for Canadian food to be actually featured when it's highlighted on the map, and am old enough to remember Carmen Sandiego. :)

Ashley Casperite on January 12, 2022 at 10:55 am

This touched on Link and sharp objects, but I think that would be a great topic for future installments! ๐Ÿ˜‚

MARIAN MESSELT on January 12, 2022 at 11:30 pm


Amanda Dodson on January 12, 2022 at 10:31 am

These are so fun to watch! I have been trying to remember the first instance of Link saying "is it hawt?"

Shari Lipman on January 12, 2022 at 10:46 pm

I don't know when R&L first said it on GMM, but "Is it hawt" came from the "Feeding People Frozen Chili On A Stick" episode of the Alka-Seltzer Great American Road Trip.

Amanda Dodson on January 16, 2022 at 12:12 am

Oh cool thank you!! :)

Christina Price on January 12, 2022 at 5:28 pm <-- That's the video, Feeding People Frozen Chili On a Stick. I think they even reacted to it on one their react vids here.

Amanda Dodson on January 16, 2022 at 12:13 am

Thank you so much for the link! :)

Stacy Wicks on January 12, 2022 at 1:08 pm

Same! That's one of my favorites and I find myself saying it a LOT! Haha

Amanda on January 12, 2022 at 10:19 am

I love this series so much. Happy 10, guys!

Julia Okoล„ska on January 12, 2022 at 9:42 am

I love how they talked so much about the hidden Rhett cams and the parents cams, but now we have a completely new thing - we hear Rhett's thoughts ๐Ÿ˜„
And as an international mythical beast, it's SO fun to see my country on the map once in a while!!

I absolutely loved this docu series and I could easily watch more episodes! Thank you so much guys ๐Ÿ’–

Calahan Taylor on January 12, 2022 at 9:14 am

Loved the first mini docuseries. I'm new to the society, and definitely enjoying it!

Moises Gutierrez on January 12, 2022 at 10:15 am

same here lol

Emily Houck on January 12, 2022 at 4:43 pm

i thoroughly enjoyed this, even more than i thought i would. i can't wait to see what other creative projects you guys have in store for the year & years to come!

Katie M Wilson on January 12, 2022 at 4:01 pm

I loved this whole series! it left me wanting more!

Jessica on January 12, 2022 at 7:36 am

The first ever GMM-episode I ever saw was a dart-episode, that was going around facebook.
This originals-series have been so good. Thank you for all the good work you do

Natalie Jones on January 12, 2022 at 3:06 pm

So much to enjoy in this installment! The tallies! Chase the Cartographer! Morgan Morgan! The Rockapella reference! ๐Ÿ˜„ Absolutely loved it!

Jill Miksch on January 12, 2022 at 3:04 pm

Thank you for these videos! The dart game is a favorite of mine so I loved this video so much!!!

Erika K on January 12, 2022 at 2:38 pm

I loved this series! Great job with this โค๏ธ Content like this is why I will always be a MS member ๐Ÿ˜

Addie Iaccino on January 12, 2022 at 1:54 pm

Thank you for this fantastic docuseries, I really enjoyed watching it and learning even more about you guys and your process!!

Beverley Smith on January 12, 2022 at 1:21 pm

Thank you so much for these videos, an absolute joy to watch!

Michael Bonnette Jr on January 12, 2022 at 5:11 am

What was the definitive start of denying Link sharp objects?

Brian Ness on January 12, 2022 at 4:30 am

Also I hope they make one on the shuffleboard game! That bit has evolved so much over the years

Brian Ness on January 12, 2022 at 4:30 am

Where did Links dad is in the forest joke come from? I remember in one of their milestone eps, they had family members congratulating them and Links dad was potato quality footage with woods in the background. They joked that he was being held hostage. Was that the origin?

Tate Rhodes on January 12, 2022 at 5:27 am

Yes thatโ€™s the origin of the joke! Super funny! ๐Ÿ˜‚
